Daily Home Learning Blog – Monday. 27th April

Good morning Year 5, welcome back to the daily home learning blog. Here are today’s lessons.

English:

LO: Expanded noun phrases

• Follow the link and complete the activities: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z4d6t39
• Remember: an expanded noun phrase is a phrase that provides more detail than a simple noun phrase
• This is most often done with adding adjectives, something we do all the time.
• Write the expanded noun phrases in your home learning book, and be sure to underline the expanded noun phrases in the sentences.

Maths:

LO: Understanding negative numbers

• Follow the link, and watch the videos and complete the activities. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z4kwjhv
• Remember: negative numbers are numbers which are smaller than 0. It can help to think of a thermometer. -5 is lower than 0.
• You can count backwards from 0 in the same way that you count forwards:
• -1, -2, -3, -4, -5…
• Be sure to write the answers in your home learning book.

RE:

• LO: On the road to Emmaus
• Read the attached Bible story – Luke 24: 13-35
• The story is told from the perspective of Cleopas, who didn’t realise he was actually talking to Jesus until after he finished explaining why he was so sad.
• Task: Imagine you are Cleopas. You are going to write a diary entry telling the story of what just happened. Be sure to discuss the feelings and emotions you would have felt in such a situation.

PE:

LO: Complete the 26 Challenge

• Yesterday was meant to be the annual London Marathon. Unfortunately, like many sporting events this year, it has been cancelled.
• Instead, people all over the UK have been taking part in the 26 challenge – you may have already heard of it on TV.
• The number 26 is being used, as a marathon is a 26-mile race.
• Choose any activity-based challenge you would like, and complete the challenge time.
• It could be:
• A 2.6 mile run
• Go up and down the stairs 26 times
• 26 star jumps
• A 26 minute activity
